I learned that one of the chorus members of Opera San José died in an accident today. Suddenly things that felt terribly important, or that took up a lot of my energy, are not so important after all.

Such sad, sad news. And of course it didn’t mean chorus members didn’t have to work tonight. I can’t imagine how they got through. But they did.

  1. A similar event happened shortly before I played a set with the Sacramento Philharmonic a few weeks ago; violist Marsha Gonick was killed in a car accident while her husband (who survived) was driving her to the SF airport.

    The concert was dedicated in Marsha’s memory.
